One Hour @ UBC is a free online lecture series conceived especially for these unusual and uncertain times.
One Hour @ UBC is a pop-up series of free online lectures conceived to help make sense of the COVID-19 crisis and other current issues. We are continually developing new series as events and themes emerge and evolve.
Lectures are delivered online live and include time to ask an instructor questions. Most lectures are recorded and posted on our YouTube channel.
